Alone in a home-spun cocoon with a metronomic heartbeat and the phasing voice of her former and future selves, Jane Weaver is preparing for the launch of her new album ‘Modern Kosmology’ (out May 19th) and sees her on an extensive tour across the UK and Ireland through October and November.
With her first single ‘Slow Motion’ hitting 6music’s playlist this week, the cosmic Weaver reveals an in the studio video featuring Jane’s Roland string synth and Korg Poly Ensemble P and which sees the musician discussing her artistic development since 2014’s ‘The Silver Globe’.
Self taught, self penned, self played, self produced, and all-autonomous Jane Weaver's ‘Modern Kosmology’ is by no means a reclusive mission. Heavily influenced by a cast of lesser-known spiritual muse (such as automatic abstract painter Hilma Af Klint and her fabled pre-surrealist secret society) Jane also enlists the physical skills of CAN's Malcolm Mooney amongst a skeleton crew of Mancunian drum-lords and well versed psychedelic axe-men to punctuate Jane's synth-loaded sonic architecture. Jane's unwaning yearning for psychoactive pop energy has just reached a new level of magnetism. As snowclones go, Modern Kosmology is the new Silver. Another Spectrum to add to the tension.
